    Is there a broken window nearby? Did a neighbor's gutter previously filled with ice become detached from their house?

    Did someone break in?

    Do you mean the floor that they are lying dead on?

    Do you mean they are lying dead on the ground outside?

    Is Frank their father?

    Is Frank in any way related or is that just put in there to throw people off?

    They were swimming in the aquarium and Frank decided to dive in. He hit his head on the side and got knocked out. The aquarium exploded from the force of Franks head, killing Tom and Betty.

    There, solved.
    Next one please.

    I think you may have something here Mag.

    Are Tom and Betty actually the names of fish? If so I would say the aquarium fell over and that's how they died and Frank is the owner?

    I've always heard it as an open window, curtains blew in, and pushed the goldfish bowl to the floor, and killed the goldfish that were in it.

    OK, I think you guys got this one pretty wrapped up. I left work yesterday so I was not able to answer your questions.

    Yes, Tom and Betty were fish
    Yes, Frank is a dog
    Yes, Frank knocked it off
    Yes, tom and betty suffocated
    No, Frank wasn't the owner, you are

    I think that about does it!
